Samsung Galaxy S4 already gets CyanogenMod 10.1 nightlies
posted by Michael H. / May 05, 2013, 10:50 AM
Right now, the only variants of the S4 that is getting the nightlies of CyanogenMod 10.1 are the T-Mobile model (SGH-M919) and a Canadian variant (SGH-I337M), but Kondik says that as soon as the source code drops for other models, it should be pretty quick to put together nightlies for those as well. These first builds aren't perfect, but Kondik says it should be good enough to be your daily driver. And, the team is already getting to work on supporting hover gestures for the S4.
The first nightlies have been posted, although they would be a bit tough to find if you didn't know where to look, because they aren't listed as "Samsung Galaxy S4" or even by the model number. The T-Mobile variant is listed as "jfltetmo" and the Canadian model as "jfltecan".

Can't wait until my GS4 comes in the mail soon. Root it, install CM10 and over clock the CPU to make it fly! :)

The S4 is already having overheating problems as reported by many S4 owners, especially during any moderate to intensive use of the CPU/GPU (gaming, multitasking, etc). If you overclock your S4, it will most likely burn up its insides and your hands as well. But most importantly, WHY would want to overclock your S4?? It will easily run any of the most demanding apps and games that current exist. It doesn't make any sense to push the hardware when there aren't any ways to notice the difference, other than comparing the benchmarks with your friends during your lunch time in the playground. Pointless.

The battery life is good, if it has overheating/defective screen they would probably replace it. I would wait till mid to end may for a later batch of them, that would gurantee less chance of a defect.

My battery life has been decent, but not great. I had to turn off all the eye tracking features to boost it, but it does make it through a day with moderate to heavy use. As for overheating, it has gotten warm a couple of times, but nothing extreme. I still prefer the One, overall.

It's not bad enough that I need one of those. I hated the extended battery on my N1 and N2, so an external pack would be the way for me if I ever felt like I was going to have a hard time finishing days. Overall, it is better in some ways than I thought it would be, slightly worse in others, but still not a bad upgrade from the S3. If i was an S3 owner with an upgrade who wanted the removable battery and microSD card, this handset would be worth it. Just buying it outright like I did, I would recommend trying the S4, the One, and the OG Pro to see which you prefer.

Yup! People overreact to these things. All phones have problems (Antenna-gate problem purple haze/blur, overheating, etc...) The Galaxy S4 is a good phone and the HTC One is a good phone as well. Please stop all the arguing..... (This isn't directed at you, this is for others that keep fighting in every forums like these).
